Vintage Leleu Rug BB4786
Vintage Leleu Rug Description:
This simple brown and beige mid century rug designed by Paule Leleu is one of the few circular rugs in the collection. Known for having a penchant for circular designs, this particular Leleu design is surprising for the designer with its simple design or stylized palmettes in the center and within the border.
Decorative rugs for the western market were originally made in countries such as India, Persia and Turkey. As the industrial revolution created a new merchant class, antique decorative vintage rugs for sale were a sought-after status symbol demonstrating wealth and good taste. Watch any period film set in the late 19th or early 20th centuries and you will almost certainly see an oriental antique rug on the floor.
